  • SPEAKER:
    - Bruce Potter, CISO with Expel.io, Biography

    PRESENTATION:
    - Your Path to "Now": Translating a Lifetime of Learning Into Cyber Risk Management.

    Your path to “now” is unique. Maybe you’ve got a computer science degree or even an information security degree. Or maybe your classrooms were basements, garages and the Internet as you wrestled knowledge from every nook and cranny you could find. Somewhere along the line you got a job (and perhaps some on-the-job training to go with it). Whatever path you took, it led you to ISSA Wisconsin … and this talk.

    In this talk I’ll walk through my own journey – from pulling cable in Alaska’s coal mines to contracting with the US government, helping run a hacker con and wearing the CISO hat. Like many people, I’ve seen a lot of shtuff and it’s given me a unique perspective. Drawing on my own experience I’ll highlight how you can:
    - Translate your own experience into making better cyber risk decisions
    - Identify blank spaces you want to fill in tomorrow, next week and in the next decade
    - Learn something new from mistakes you made years ago
    - Find others with experiences that make you smarter and stronger

  • SPEAKER:
    - Simon Puleo, Security Global Sales Enablement Manager with Micro Focus, Biography
    PRESENTATION:
    - AppSec For DevOps

    Building a security program into your DevOps pipeline won’t happen overnight but seeing the vision and executing in manageable bites will lead to success. We will cover static, dynamic and run time analysis and the overall program.

  • SPEAKER:
    - David Balcar, Security Strategist and Cyber Profiler with Carbon Black, Biography
    PRESENTATION:
    - Insider Threats: Stories From Outside The Cubicle!

    Turn off your mobile phone, put down your tablet and learn about the real-world insider threats causing the greatest harm (not just the big ones that make the 5 o’clock news). How quickly could your organization be breached by malicious insiders? How can your team help find them? Threat hunters are often tasked with looking for attackers’ TTPs. But how can they look for malicious insiders? Please join our special guest, David Balcar a globally recognized security professional, as he shares his personal, real-world experience of sniffing out insider threats.

    My talk will cover: Real vs. Hollywood insider threats. During the talk, I will show instances of insider threats from around the world including two specific cases I have worked over the years where I caught insider threats. We’ll talk about what they took, how they took it and how we were able to catch them. These examples will reinforce my talk with personal experiences. Case No. 1 will be the story of a rouge system administrator who was selling info to acquisition targets. Case No. 2 will review a case where an employee was trying to steal the formula for a manufacturing process and client lists, as well as trying to damage the employer by sending confidential info to employees.

    - Carbon Black will raffle off one Amazon Fire 7 Tablet! All ISSA Wisconsin Members and Guests are eligible to Win! Must be present at time of drawing.

  • Please join us for our Business Networking Hour after the days Speakers! Beverages and appetizers will be served.

February 13, 2018

  • SPEAKER:
    - Terry Kurzynski, Founder of Halock Security Labs, Biography
    PRESENTATION:
    - Duty of Care Risk Analysis: "Getting consensus from legal, information security, and executive management."

  • SPEAKER:
    - Octavio Paguaga, CEH, OSCP, Senior Security Consultant with Sayers Technology, Biography
    PRESENTATION:
    - Aiding the Enemy: PowerShell Attacks and How to Stop Them.
    The PowerShell scripting language has been installed by default on every version of Microsoft Windows since Windows 7. While PowerShell is a boon to system administrators due to its incredibly powerful capabilities, it can also provide malicious attackers and malware code with easy-to-use, easy-to-hide hooks into the operating system. Security researchers have released PowerShell code for many different tasks in recent years, including network sniffers, password readers, and even cross-process DLL injection. The ready availability of these scripts means that even unsophisticated "script kiddie" attackers can leverage these tools to more quickly compromise any system running PowerShell.

    In this demonstration, Octavio Paguaga of Sayers Technology will demonstrate a successful, live attack of a Windows workstation using a common PowerShell script, and take complete control of the system remotely. As importantly, he will also demonstrate specific tools and technologies that can be used to mitigate PowerShell threats, including some free tools that are built into more recent versions of Windows. The session will also include Q&A with attendees.

    - February 13, 2018, 3p-5p.

March 13, 2018

  • SPEAKERS:
    - Nicholas Nedostup, VP and CISO of Johnson Controls
    - Anders Norremo, CEO of Third Party Trust, Bio

    PRESENTATIONS:
    - Challenges of cybersecurity within manufacturing

    - Emerging threats from your third parties and best practices for managing it.
    Vendors, contractors and consultants are essential for business operations today, yet there's varying risks to working with them. A survey by Soha Systems places the percentage of all data breaches linked directly or indirectly to third-party access at 63 percent.

    With business units clamoring to partner with firms to develop new technology or reduce costs by outsourcing, information security professionals are put between a rock and a hard place. With limited resources and staff, infosec teams are asked to implement governance and policy around third party access and maintain a risk profile of an ever growing vendor population.

    Join ISSA Wisconsin and Anders Norremo, CEO of ThirdPartyTrust, as we discuss the critical steps of ensuring a proper, consistent and scalable vendor risk management program.

    DATE & TIME:
    - March 13, 2018, 3p-5p.

  • SPEAKERS:
    - Detective Carlo Davila, Biography - Intelligence Fusion Center / Milwaukee Police Department
    - Special Agent Donald Todd, Biography - Wisconsin Department of Justice

    PRESENTATIONS:
    - Overview: Discuss The Intelligence Fusion Centers from inception through maturity and the need for a collaborative information sharing network.

    This presentation will break down the areas of responsibility for the two Fusion Centers in Wisconsin as well as discuss the network of the 79 Fusion Centers across the country. Discussion will cover the critical operational capabilities of the Fusion Centers and how the intelligence process works. We will teach the audience how to identify the 8 signs of terrorism and how to report suspicious activity to their local fusion centers.

    Most importantly we will identify contact information for the State’s Fusion Centers and encourage stakeholders to participate in our Fusion Liaison Officers program.

    - Implementation of the Wisconsin Cybersecurity Strategy includes implementation of a Cyber Liaison Officer (CLO) program, similar to the Threat Liaison Officer (TLO) or Fusion Liaison Officer (FLO) programs. This program, once functional, will be designed to greatly expand cyber information-sharing capabilities and increase situational awareness.

    The CLO presentation will provide more information on the CLO Program, its relationship with the Fusion Centers and the roles and duties or Cyber Liaison Officers.
